Walter Ritchie sculpture 'Growth' at Kenilworth School
For context see SP2972 : Entrance to Upper School, Kenilworth School, Leyes Lane.

'Growth' is made of aluminium and was installed in 1965.

It 'combines simplified figurative elements with semi-abstract biomorphic forms and musical notation against a slate architectural background..The central motif is that of a cell dividing and reproducing itself...The musical notation comes from Beethoven's Missa Solemnis. There is a male figure sitting at the joystick control of an invisible craft. He signifies man's ambitions to explore the limits. The horse symbolises the beneficial power of nature when harnessed to man's endeavour..
